Vladimir Lukich Borovikovsky (1757-1825) was a prominent Russian painter, known for his portraits and historical scenes. He was born in Ukraine but spent most of his life in St Petersburg, Russia. Borovikovsky studied at the Imperial Academy of Arts in St Petersburg and later became a member of the Academy. His portraits are notable for their elegance, attention to detail and ability to capture the personality of the sitter. Borovikovsky was particularly adept at depicting the clothing and accessories of his sitters, who were often members of the Russian aristocracy and royalty. In addition to portraits, Borovikovsky also painted religious and historical scenes, although his portraits remain his most famous works.
